English classes are not starting at fourth grade, but at first grade now.

I firmly believe that bilingualism is very important and is a strength in Quebec, and like you are saying, “the more languages we know, the better”.

The school language laws are not there to make it “difficult to raise a family” in Quebec, it is just important for children to understand both languages, especially the one of the majority around them. By doing so, they can increase their social circle and are able to speak/understand the people and culture around them, AND speak their parents first language.

Nobody would speak against Netherlands immigrant children learning Dutch AND English, why would it be different here?

Like what you read? Give Bruno Larouche a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
